Cristina Núñez (esp-ale)

Nacida en 1962, Cristina Nuñez comenzó a realizar autorretratos en 1988 como una forma de autoterapia, para superar la baja autoestima y estimular su proceso creativo. Hasta principios de la década de 2000, produjo libros de fotografía en los que abordaba cuestiones sociales a través del retrato. Al margen de esta obra pública, continuó realizando autorretratos, que se convirtieron en Someone to Love; desde 2005 este ha sido el foco de su trabajo, así como de los talleres The Self-Portrait Experience que ha estado realizando en todo el mundo. En 2013 comenzó su proyecto de net-art en curso La Vie en Rose, en video, performance y plataforma web, con el objetivo real de encontrar a su pareja perfecta. Nuñez se considera una activista social, que usa su propia vida para estimular al espectador a reflejarse en su trabajo.

Nuñez ahora vive y trabaja en Ticino, Suiza. En febrero de 2020 obtuvo un doctorado por Obras Publicadas en la Facultad de Artes y Humanidades de la Universidad de Derby, Reino Unido.

 

Born in 1962, Cristina Nuñez started taking self-portraits in 1988 as a form of self-therapy, to overcome low self-esteem and stimulate her creative process. Up to the early 2000s, she produced photography books in which she addressed social questions through the portrait. On the margins of this public body of work, she continued taking self-portraits, which became Someone to Love; since 2005 this has been the focus of her work, as well as of The Self-Portrait Experience workshops that she has been conducting around the world. In 2013 she started her ongoing net-art project La Vie en Rose, on video, performance and web platform, with the real goal of finding her perfect partner. Nuñez considers herself a social activist, using her own life to stimulate the viewer to mirror himself in her work.

Nuñez is now living and working in Ticino, Switzerland. In February 2020 she has obtained a PhD by Published Works at the College of Arts and Humanities, University of Derby, UK.
